JOHN DEERE 180 SL PRECISIONCUT GREENS MOWER STAY ON THE LEADING EDGE WITH THESE WALK-BEHINDS

Our SL PrecisionCut Walk Greens Mowers the 180SL, 220SL and 260SL give you a number of great features like a dual chain drive, forward-mounted pivot point, and superior cut quality, along with the popular Speed Link Height-of-Cut System found on our QA5 and QA7 cutting units. Everything is easier to adjust. You can switch rollers to adjust to growing conditions by removing two bolts. And Greens Tender Conditioners and rotary brushes are easier to install and adjust, thanks to a built-in bracket. An available push brush option delivers more pronounced striping while increasing cut quality.

CONSISTENT EFFECTIVE HEIGHT OF CUT A PRISM TELLS THE STORY
For maximum contour-following capability in severe undulations, the John Deere 180SL performs exceptionally. With a narrow 18-in. (45.7 cm) frame, fixed grass catcher, and narrow overlap, the productivity of the 180SL is roughly equal to that of 21-in. (53.34 cm) floating-head walk-behind greens mowers.

RUBBER ISOLATORS FOR REDUCED VIBRATION
Rubber engine isolators reduce engine vibration, enhancing operator comfort and ensuring a consistent effective height of cut across the width of the machine. The isolators are mounted to the front and rear frame cross members, which feature a double section for increased strength and durability.

THERE ARE FOUR ROLLER OPTIONS AVAILABLE FOR GREENS MOWING:
A machined grooved roller with solid endcaps
A continuous machined grooved roller
Solid smooth roller
Hollow smooth roller
There is an additional spiral roller option for tee, approach, and fairway mowing. The other roller options can be considered for non-greens applications as well.

DUAL TRACTION ROLLS FOR STRAIGHT TRACKING AND EXCELLENT MANEUVERABILITY
The dual traction rolls for the rear drum are powered by an external differential drive. This design provides equal power to both rolls for the straightest possible tracking. The external differential drive and split drum work together to allow minimal turning efforts and excellent maneuverability when making turns and mowing cleanup passes. The traction drive rolls are constructed of aluminum, which offers corrosion resistance for durability and long life. The smooth roller surface on the 180SL and 220SL Mowers provide an evenly rolled appearance on greens and other mowing surfaces. The 260SL Mower features a dimpled drum for increased traction in turfs of higher heights, such as tees, collars, aprons, and approaches. The outside ends of the traction rolls are tapered to provide a smooth transition between the rolled and non-rolled surface areas.

SEALED EXTERNAL DIFFERENTIAL PROVIDES EVEN POWER DISTRIBUTION FOR DRIVE ROLLS AND REEL
The external differential and reel drive sprocket provide even power distribution for a consistent speed to the drive rolls and reel. An internal gear reduction for the reel drive allows a consistent frequency of clip across the entire range of engine throttle. The drum drive and reel drive sprockets run in a sealed oil bath, resulting in continuous, quiet performance and exceptional component life.

NARROW FRONT-ROLLER-TO-REAR-DRUM DISTANCE FOR CONTOUR FOLLOWING AND CLEANUP-PASS CUT QUALITY
The line of SL Walk Greens Mowers features a narrow front-roller-to-rear-drum distance for easy turning, maneuverability, and cleanup-pass cutting performance. With a Greens Tender Conditioner (GTC) installed, this distance is 13.5 in. (342 mm). A narrow front-roller-to-rear-drum base increases performance in undulations, minimizing scalping opportunities and improving cut quality. Gear-driven, counter-rotating rotary brush and Greens Tender Conditioner for grain and thatch control Roller attaching system for quick removal and installation of the front roller for changing conditions. Easily accessible bedknife-to-reel adjustment. Optional brushes help stand the grass up for a cleaner cut and improved striping appearance. Quiet, smooth gas engine. High-strength steel reelsLong life, reduced maintenance, and superior toughness. 14-blade reel lowers frequency of clip. Special alloys ensure bedknives are tough and resistant. Grass-catcher systemFixed to plane of reel for maximum performance in severe undulations. Speed Link height-of-cut system adjusts both sides of the roller at the same time. Integrated gear reduction yields same quality of cut regardless of operator mowing speed. Greasable reel and roller bearings purge unwanted contaminants.
